Shannon Dufault submitted this one. "These pictures are of my brother and I from the very first year we started doing drum corps (left) and last year. We both started in 1992 with the Spartan Cadets. After they folded, we didn't do much until 1997 when we both joined Spartans at the ages of 12 and 14, when we won our first gold medal our rookie years! My brother was a contra player and I am in the color guard. "Last season my brother filled a spot at Cadets in the bari line, so this is a picture of him and I after his finals performance in Orlando. This season my brother will be aging out. He still continues to be with the Cadets this summer, but he will be marching in the tuba line, while I am still a strong, eight-year member of the Spartans color guard with two years left after this season!"
